Your personal safety is our priority at The Good Samaritan
Hospital. One of the most important ways you can help us is by talking. Talk to
your doctor, nurse, and other health care workers. Tell them important things
about your health. Ask questions. Make decisions about your health by talking
with your health care team at The Good Samaritan Hospital.

announced. This training exercise is done for your protection and safety. In the
event of an actual fire, please remain in your room and follow instructions
provided to you by hospital staff.
